OK i will check the DPI now.
I am not sure on the connections as they are just the basic ones that came with the monitor to the desktop, so i guess VGA? I unhooked and rehooked the connections last night also to make sure nothing was loose.
Yes i updated the AMD drivers
after the problem occurred last night.
For some reason i moved the tower back and forth and after i did this, the correct monitor was found on the device monitor. Its reading the 1920 x 1080 resolution currently, however the font and sizes are off from what they were. Clearly shaking the tower cannot be a fix to this problem. Could it mean the video card is loose or maybe overheated to some extent and needs to be replaced?
